I want a new Drug

We had an overdose admission today. For some reason, I really like overdoses. An overdose patient arrivng in the unit has usually already been stabilized to some degree, and presents a good opportunity to learn about their particular ingestion. Today, it was Seroquel, an antidepressant. We looked up the management of Seroquel overdoses in our Toxicology database, and the amount that she ingested rivals the maximum amount that has been reported in the literature. We might be able to do a case report on it.
